Getting Ahead of my Faith

My world’s collapsing into itself
Another lesson falls off the shelf
Two staples make up the book’s worn spine
The dog eared copy I once read mine

Blowing the dust and spider webs off
I closed my eyes and started to cough
The lesson once learned now burns my eyes
Is a cornerstone of wisdom denied

“Be still and know that I am God”
Not waiting for His infinite prod
Getting ahead of my faith again
I’ll slow down once more and show restrain
